more pixels are better!

Re: Are those figures for

I disagree - I think your statement left out too much of the sensor's impact on the "real" resolution of the camera.

e.g. What do you mean by sensor size? Does that include the number of pixels, or just the area (obviously a two pixel APS-C sensor has an effect on camera resolution).

Does sensor size include the coverage area of the pixels? A sensor with tiny pixels in the and tiny lenses in the middle of large circuits will have much lower resolution than the gapless microlenses of a 50D, for example.
